Hero cop from Pulse nightclub shooting fired due to PTSD

At the Eatonville Town Council's meeting on Tuesday, the council moved to remove him from the force completely.

In six months, Delgado would reach his 10-year anniversary with the force and become vested in his pension.

But on Monday his department told him his last day would be on December 31.

"I needed help and I guess I am being punished because I asked for help", said Delgado.

Delgado, who was reunited with Colon following the shooting, recalled how it felt to save a life him in an interview with Anderson Cooper after the attack.

The department has since deemed him unfit for duty and Delgado's last day on the force will be December 31, six months before he qualifies for his pension from the town.

For the past eight months, Delgado has worked a desk job, answering phones and doing light tasks. "Without him, who knows if I would have stayed inside that club and not made it out?" "Could they have let me do that for six more months?" The Orlando Police Department granted early retirement benefits in July to Officer Gerry Realin, 37, who was diagnosed with PTSD and will get about 80 percent of his $70,000 salary each year for life.

Instead, the newspaper reports, Delgado will receive 42 percent of his salary starting when he's 55 years old.

Cpl. Delgado said he feels betrayed the department. Delgado makes $38,500 annually, Town Clerk Cathy Williams said.

The Police Department wouldn't confirm the reason for Delgado being let go.

"I have a duty to do per what's legal, per what was said to me, and that's what I have to do", Eatonville Mayor Eddie Cole said about the decision.

Deglado's friend Colon is shocked to learn of the officer's termination.

The Sentinel reported that a Florida bill requiring coverage for mental health treatment in workers compensation insurance for first responders with PTSD advanced Tuesday in the state Senate.

The bill moved forward and could be heard in the 2018 legislative session beginning January 9.

"It was a feeling you can't describe, you can't put into words knowing that you helped save someone", he said.

"It's a small town ..."

'I never thought I would have gotten to this point.
